AN Applecross teen will appear in court today, charged for allegedly struggling with police after being found with a gun, ammunition and drugs in East Perth overnight.
A police spokesman said officers stopped the 18-year-old after he got out of his car at a service station on East Parade about 11.20pm, Thursday.
“As an officer approached the man’s vehicle, he observed a rifle and silencer in the driver’s side footwell,” he said.
“The man was then arrested after a short struggle.”
Police said a search of the man’s car uncovered a pistol, ammunition, cannabis and methylamphetamine, knives, electronic scales and a balaclava.
The man is facing a number of charges including possession of a firearm in circumstances of aggravation, two counts of possession with intent to sell or supply, possession of stolen or unlawfully obtained property, and possession of a disguise.
He will appear before the Perth Magistrates Court today.
